Do you remember what year that was? The US space shuttle Challenger exploded, the Chernobyl reactor disaster contaminated the world, Top Gun came to the cinema, Chancellor Helmut Kohl compared Gorbachev to Goebbels, Ronald Reagan was US President, and “Final Countdown” was at the top of the charts. Oh yes, and Bayern Munich became German champions, of course. I was still in the armed forces, drove a Golf GLS (model 78, 70 hp) and started my training as a journalist in Lüneburg in the summer. One of the bosses drove a Mazda 323, a Mercedes, my best friend back then, the photographer, soon bought the first VW Corrado G60. Later he sawed holes in the shelf of my first Peugeot 205 GTI. We were crazy about cars like AUTO BILD – and have stayed that way.
